Pop Smoke has been physically gone for eight months, but his legacy lives on. According to Hits Daily Double, his posthumous album Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon is expected to return to Billboard 200’s No. 1 spot on Sunday (October 18), three months after its chart-topping debut.
The potential victory is preceded by the release of Pop Smoke’s video for the “Diana” remix featuring Calboy and Diddy’s son King Combs. The song is one of 19 tracks on the aforementioned album, which all debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 following its release.
Directed by Brilliant Garcia, the visual features plenty of skin, luxury cars and Pop chillin’ with his homies as they scope out several voluptuous women.
Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon arrived in July and became the largest posthumous opening since Michael Jackson’s This Is It, which arrived shortly after the King of Pop’s 2009 death.
Pop was murdered in February at a home he was renting in the Hollywood Hills during what police initially thought was a botched home invasion. The late Brooklyn-bred rapper had mistakenly posted his address on social media while in Los Angeles, leading the suspects directly to his door.
On July 9, five people were taken into custody for the murder, including two minors. A few days later, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office announced charges against Corey Walker, 19, and Keandre Rodgers, 18, as well as two juveniles.
Walker and Rodgers were charged with murder occurring during the commission of a robbery and a burglary, making them both eligible for the death penalty or life in prison without parole. The two are also facing gang and gun-related allegations.
